Prioritizing Your Mental Health Over the New Year

We’re in the early stages of 2023. Many of you are likely trying to figure out what this year is going to bring and how you can experience a year that is more personally fulfilling. Texas, especially the DFW area, are also going through a lot of changes culturally, economically, technologically, and socially, and you’re tasked with trying to navigate it all while managing your family, friends, work, and obligations.

It’s challenging. But the truth is that you do deserve to have a wonderful year, no matter who you are or what you’ve experienced in the past. Most of the time, that means achieving goals, having social experiences, and enjoying activities. Yet the only way to do that is by prioritizing your mental health.

Your Mental Health Touches Every Aspect of Your Life

Why is it that so many of us quit on our New Year’s resolutions? Why is it that so many of us find ourselves overwhelmed, or with low energy, or unable to focus on the tasks that we want to complete?

It is because all of the things have an opportunity to make your year more fulfilling are directly connected to your mental health. When your mental health suffers, you are more likely to:

  • Find yourself with low energy.
  • Struggle to manage all the stresses of life.
  • Desire to avoid social situations.
  • See neutral experiences more negatively.
  • Quit before reaching your goals.

No matter what ideas you have for the new year, struggling mental health can make them less likely to come to fruition. However, when your mental health is under control, you are far more likely to:

  • Feel like you can take on new projects.
  • Overcome setbacks and stress.
  • Enjoy social situations.
  • Feel more positively about your experiences.
  • Maintain the energy and passion you need to achieve goals.

Your mental health affects every decision you make and everything you undertake. It also affects whether or not you see the year as “great” or “terrible” no matter what you do or achieve.

Mental Health is the Resolution of Every Year

While you have likely already come up with your resolutions, consider adding that you will finally see a psychiatrist in Dallas and Fort Worth for your mental health. Your mental health and wellness is too important, because your ability to enjoy every other component of your life is directly dependent on your mental health being manageable and under control.
